I saw these at a quilt show last year and thought "I can make that without buying her pattern!" I never thought to look for a free tutotorial on line ... I ended up sending her $14 for a kit. I have made two of them so far - I use one of them for my little hand-work project supplies - will definitely make more - I got very lucky at a rummage sale last summer and purchased a "replacement" tape for 25 cents - my kind of price - old, and sturdy too!

I am sooo going to try this pattern. Looks way easier than putting in zippers. I can make lots of make up bags.
Thanks so much!!!!! It is great to share!!

When I find a good tutorial, I just print it out & put in in my "projects" file - - one day!!! You know one day is not a day of the week, right?

I have made many of these bags - so quick & easy. I used "Dick & Jane" panels for a group of 8 old-time friends (we gather at a place on Coeur d'Alene River each August - float the river, rubber duck races, hike, etc), We call it our Kindergarten class reunion - been friends since we were 5 - & we're 65 now. The Dick & Jane fabric panels seemed so right for this group - we learned to read with Dick & Jane.
I'm doing a tutorial for another group I quilt with (mostly for charity) in a couple weeks & several non-members who saw the bags want to join us for snap-bag-day.

I saw these bags for the first time at a quilt show in Georgetown, CA. Love them and want to make as a Nook pouch for my husband. I went on line to learn more and thought to myself, I am going to have to order the pattern, then I read a comment about what a great tutorial site we have on the quilting board. I thought, you are right, I think I will review some of the posts and what popped up were two on how to make these snap bags. I have read and copied everything I need to know, Now I just need to get the tape and get started. I love this board and appreciate all the fabulous quilters that share what they know. Thank you, thank you.

I know I am overthinking this but I need some help. On the tutorial they show the material with the strips on the diagonal. How do I cut the material if I have sewn the strips together in a row? Hope I am making myself clear.

You do not need to have your fabric stripped but if u want that then make larger squares and cut the size you need by cutting diagonally

I posted this quite a while ago when I showed the pics of my bags but many have not seen it yet and are interested in making the bags..they are fun fast and easy

You can get the tape measures at the dollar stores
I made with co-ordinated fabric and turned the pocket for tape to outside then added ribbon pulls as I sewed it down. It is so cute thanks ever so much!
